About Lynn Van Vactor

We live, work and travel in the Pacific NW and Alaska. We often travel for work and appreciate a comfortable home to stay in. Our home respresents what we love. When we travel internationally we stay in vacation homes and get to know the community. Its a great way to see the world. Quiet, private, peaceful...No noise from hotel hallway, entertain clients or guests in a fine atmosphere!

Why Lynn Van Vactor chose Seattle

We chose Magnolia due to its wonderful views and great family atmopshere. We enjoy the community, shops, bistros...views. We love that its so close (5 minutes from the office downtown) a very inviting community within walking distance and close to bus transportation downtown.

What makes this house unique

City Skyline views within walking distance, Panoramic Puget Sound Views, Olympic Mountains and Eliot Bay from the property. A pair of Eagles perched high on the tree located on the bluff almost every morning, they have been there for years! You can watch them from bed or the breakfast nook, hear them call around 6am-7am, and then around 8 am they go about their day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hope you got my message after I arrived in Portland......didn't have time in Seattle to respond.

We ALL loved your beautiful home and it's location with the fabulous views and convenience to our younger son & his family who live on the upper section of Thorndyke. Everyone walked back and forth quite often. We sat out in your back yard a lot since the weather was perfect for that. Nice grill!

Plus the beds were super comfortable. Great situation as our older son & his wife could have the basement suite. They were impressed!

My 2 grandsons really enjoyed playing hide & seek in your house as they remembered from the last time how many good places to stay concealed!

The flowers and bushes in your neighborhood were spectacular this trip. So appreciated after our long hard winter.

Thanks again and we would love to stay there again next visit! So far our favorite vacation rental in Magnolia.

Best wishes,

May 2014

The Magnolia area of Seattle is so beautiful and quaint. I love this area of town! Even better was the lovely home that we rented. This was the first time I have ever used VRBO, and if this home is representative of all the rentals, I am sold!! This home was very comfortable, the accomodations were more than adequate. If I find myself in Seattle again, I will definently look for this home. Thank you!

Great little gem in Seattle.

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed or stay at this beautifully appointed vacation home. Everything was just as advertised and more. We felt like we were walking into someone's home, fresh and clean, perfectly decorated, fully furnished kitchen with dishes, pots and pans, even a full array of spices in the cupboard. Nice quiet neighborhood, accessible to all the sites in Seattle.

We'll definitely look up this gem again on our next visit to Seattle. Great job!!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved Lynn's home. It was as beautiful as pictured with even a little larger kitchenette table. The yard was perfect and the view was lovely. At night seeing the lights in the city in the distance and watching the lit boats cruise was wonderful. Very comfortable beds and we wanted tor nothing. Home was super clean. It was close enough to get to sites in the city to see, like the Space Needle and the duck ride but then you come back to a lovely neighborhood. We had a toddler with us so we went to a number of beautiful parks. On top of the wonderful home, Lynn is very nice and quick to respond to any question. Thanks so much. Would love to come again another time.

Wonderful Graduation!

  • 5 of 5

SeaEscape Home is a fantastic Rental! We recently had a college graduate and rented Lynn's home to be near the graduation. The home is very clean and well stocked for everything you might need. I was able to cook for the graduation gathering afterwards and there was plenty of room for everyone to gather for the afternoon. Great location and minutes to stores and downtown Seattle. Lynn was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions I had. Highly recommend SeaEscape.

The Magnolia Neighborhood is located on a peninsula west of Queen Anne Hill‚ south of the Ballard Locks and Fishermen's Terminal‚ and only minutes from downtown Seattle‚ Magnolia with its natural boundaries has a special feeling of being an island, although it is actually a peninsula. Accessible by three bridges‚ Magnolia is a special place to live and visit‚ it is close to the city but has a small town feel. Beautiful View Homes, nature trails, biking trails and sidewalks along the bluff provide for great walking and hiking.

The Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle has a remarkable and unique business district. The center is known as the “village” and is home to some of Seattle’s top award winning restaurants and coffee shops‚ well known specialty shops and professional services. The outer rim of this unique island like neighborhood is home to marine business and borders the Fisherman’s Terminal which homes docks for the fishing industry and cruise ship Industry.

Sea Escape of Seattle is located on the south end of Magnolia overlooking Elliot Bay and West Seattle.
